The Heiresses (M)

The Heiresses movie poster

Winner of the Silver Bear for Best Actress at this year’s Berlin Film Festival.

A shy and sheltered Paraguayan woman, Chela, is forced to live on her own after her long-time partner gets convicted on fraud charges while trying to manage the couple’s mounting debt. Aside from selling-off heirlooms from their large crumbling house to maintain an income, Chela reluctantly begins to take paid jobs driving her wealthy, aging neighbours around the neighbourhood. In her new role as chauffeur, she meets the young and life-affirming Angy, an encounter that lures Chela out of her reserve and helps her rediscover her own desires.
